The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its Principal Guest Conductor, Ilan Volkov, perform two of the last in the series of Liszt's symphonic poems - the mercurial Hamlet, a study of Shakespeare's tragic hero, and From the Cradle to the Grave, one of Liszt's most experimental works. They sit alongside Mussorgsky's much-loved Pictures at an Exhibition and the world premiere of a new piano concerto by Julian Anderson, which offers a tour around 'an imaginary museum' of contrasting worlds and sensations.
